Now known as Afropop Worldwide (APWW), the program is still the standard for both the curious and the connoisseur.

This is a collection of music for folk dancing that has long been out of print. Most of it consists of 78RPM transcriptions. Many of the vinyl recordings are actually transcribed from older 78s. From the soulful Macedonian, happy-happy Croatian, to the furious Russian-Ukranian melodies this music makes wonderful listening, but most importantly it demands to be danced. The 78RPM recordings often have a vigor and life unsurpassed by modern recordings. This is because they could not edit them, and...

This Kazoomzoom.com collection focuses on ragtime, an American music style from more than 100 years ago, a long time before the invention of CDs and iPods. Back then, sound was recorded into things like wax, resin, paper and metal. The paper recordings were played by instrument machines. The most popular was called a player piano, and most of the songs here are recorded from player pianos. Ragtime's uplifting and whimsical style is perfect as a happy and inspiring backdrop for playtime. The...
